Vanessa Williams still in touch with first love
Singer-actress Vanessa Williams says she is still in touch with the ex-boyfriend whose child she aborted as a teenager.
The 'Ugly Betty' star stunned fans, friends and even members of her own family with the baby revelation in her newly-published memoirs You Have No Idea, in which she names the ex.
But she is determined not to vilify her first love, Bruce Hanson and said that he has become a wonderful person and a father of two, reported Contactmusic. "He was wonderful and (now) he's a father of two, he's been married to his wife forever.
He's a lovely guy," she said. And to make sure he was OK with her detailing his part in her past in the book, Williams insisted on sending him a copy of everything concerning him before the tome was published.
"I sent everybody their pages before we even went to print. I said, 'Listen, this is what I'm planning; if there's any questions... and everyone got back their notes'. I wanted to be fair. It's my story and my life and I didn't want to drag anybody else down," she added.
